It's not a good daily driver, but that doesn't keep me from driving it.

I know its not an s2k, but I DD my slammed miata. The convertible part isn't a big deal...... if you live in San Diego. But yeah, I would look forward to Fridays when I drove my nice comfy expedition to work.

No trunk, + small car commuting a long time sharing the road with bigger cars is a major thumbs down.

I always have my top down. Rain, cold, hot, etc....it's a main reason i bought the car....then again, you can always hard top it if you don't like the top. I might be biased though b/c I own a non-2-seater also for the family.

If you DD in a shitty climate, get a hardtop. If it snows/gets icy where you live, don't even think about it.

350z or WRX really is a much better car for the money. More practical too. And faster. And handles better.

:dunno:

I drove a friend's AP1 with no glass window, blizzak's, slammed and it went fine through a big snow storm last year even without T/C. Actually was fun and easy to drive, more so than my AP1 with 10-20% tread left in the summer. :oh: Only thing done to prep for winter mode was to take off the front lip, as it just plows through snow. Wouldn't say it's the best DD but it works. :fawk:

I don't think I've ever seen anyone drive an s2k in the winter around here. :chuckles:

lol me either, not around here - storms get out of control and the amount of salt we have on the roads just eats cars.

But I DD my AP2 for as long as I owned it (In spring summer and fall). Had no issues, it was the reason I bought the car, I didn't want it as a weekend warrior, I wanted to drive it all the time. I had a 60 mile round trip drive, and the car made it tolerable. I'd still suggest the AP2 over the AP1 for several reasons, but to each their own.
